    Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He’s exacting, blunt, inconsiderate - and completely irresistible. A beautiful bastard. Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family’s massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who’d been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative - completely infuriating - creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he’s never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe’s so tempting he’s willing to bend the rules....

    HOT, Exciting, Modern

    One word: STAIRWELL!


    Have you listened to any of Grace Grant’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Grace Grant has become my favorite narrator. there is just something about her voice that works with this genre. I recently listened to another book she narrated and recognized her voice immediately. She is great!

    Yes! Couldn't put it down!

    Although Sierra Sellers is, and will always be, the lifeline between Luke McCoy and Cole Ackerley, everyday life proves to be the true test of the bond the three of them have forged. No one ever said life was going to be rainbows and butterflies after the three of them admitted their love for one another.

She's learning to deal with the shattered remains while putting one foot in front of the other, taking control of her own decisions, and ultimately living one day at a time.

    Nicole Edwards is the queen of erotic romance in my opinion! I have listened to everything she has on Audible and can't wait for more! My only request would be that she asks Grace Grant to narrate one of her books. That would be perfection!
    This book was perfect. NE makes the unbelievable believable. Perfect balance of story time and sexy time. More please!!!

    It's been three long months since Anna's seen Alec, since he saved her life and lit up her soul with unquenchable desire. Being without him has left her on edge, but his bravery has motivated her to change her life and go after what she's always wanted - a job where she can help people. She can't wait to show Alec the woman she's become in his absence, or to prove how much she's missed him...

    Catherine’s career in Chicago is taking off and the handsome stormy-eyed stranger who recently rocked her world has become - dare she say it? - her boyfriend. Dating a billionaire who’s a god in the bedroom and a virtuoso in the kitchen definitely has its perks. But it’s the unguarded, tender moments with William that stir Cat’s heart and reawaken her appetite for love. A weekend trip to William’s vineyard so he can face a painful loss puts their new relationship to the test.

    Love hurts...if you're lucky.

    Kaden's dying, but before he goes he has one problem to solve - he must ask his oldest and dearest friend, Seth, to take over as Dom and Master to his beloved wife, Leah. Seth has always seen himself as the perpetual screwup and Kaden as the strong and steady one, so his friend's request rocks his world. He also knows there's no way he can refuse Kaden this.

This must have taken a lot of research. Most DS books are not true pictures of the lifestyle, but this one had it all. Just... WOW.

    "If opposites attract, then I am nothing. Because you, you are everything." There's no easy road traveled to such an intense sentiment, one I never dreamt I'd feel. But I also never planned on Cannon Blackwell climbing aboard my tour bus.

    She's a poor girl from Hamtramck. He's a billionaire bad boy from Detroit. They should've never crossed paths. But when they do, thanks to Chloe's latest housesitting gig, the collision of sparks, secrets, and misunderstandings leaves both of them yearning to belong exactly where they shouldn't - with each other.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Unbelonging the most enjoyable?

    I like that the heroine, regardless of her inner thoughts and turmoil, is strong enough to balance with the "alpha" male in this story. She has been through enough to keep it real with him instead of cowering and giving in to him when it really matters. Though the story lacks some depth, I will definitely purchase the second book, I have somehow become invested in these characters and I NEED to see how it plays out.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like that Lawton, of course a beautiful, famous man, is not afraid to tell Chloe how he feels. The intimate moments between the two would have to be my favorite parts, They, along with most of the dialogue, seems real. I think many would say it was lacking in the depth department, but i think it was more like what people would say. No big flowery words that sound stupid coming from a man's mouth. Though I usually like my books WAY steamier, this one is a keeper.


    What does Erin Mallon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Calm. Mallon's voice, though a little too much at times, brings a calm to the story. I would read through it and devour it, losing some of the story in the process. Even during intense parts of the story, Mallon's voice is consistently just... calm... without being monotone, and with a great male voice, too.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, only because of the negligent, snarky boss at the restaurant. Been there, dealt with that, NO FUN!
    Otherwise, the CLIFF-HANGER ending is pretty intense.


    Any additional comments?

    I am more surprised than anyone who knows my usual preference in books, that I really enjoyed this book. I am itching for part 2!

Flying halfway around the world from England to a mountain town in Colorado should do the trick. But when she finds a gorgeous man at her rental cabin, Nina's cold, lonely adventure suddenly heats up.

    Would you listen to The Gamble again? Why?

    Yes! Just to catch the things I may have missed while I listened.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Gamble?

    The discussion between the main characters after so much thinking and stewing.


    What does Emma Taylor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Emma Taylor is amazing. She brought this story to life for me and was able to switch back and forth from an english to American accent, from male to female, etc. Unbelieveable!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I did. And yes it is LOONG. I usually listen to books with more sexy time, but in 25 hours (over two days), I didn't even notice that there were only a few scenes. Good hot scenes, but only a few.


    Any additional comments?

    I laughed aloud, I cried openly, This book is the first in a long time that really got me emotional. I am so impressed! I wish I could work and read the rest of the series on my kindle, but I have pre-ordered book 2 and will wait... impatiently.

    Kate is a modern businesswoman who knows exactly how to run her well-organized world. But underneath her professional exterior lurks a secret that she’s been running from for years - a fierce desire to be dominated that both exhilarates and terrifies her. And there’s only one man who’s ever tempted her to lose control. Powerful executive Matt Pearce gave Kate her first taste of what it means to surrender completely at the hands of a dominant man, and she's never been able to forget. Though she’s spent years trying to outrun her feelings for him, a chance encounter changes everything....

    Depends on the book.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Not bad. Just so so.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Absolutely nothing. I literally checked my two audiobook accounts to be sure I hadn't already listened to it.
